    Hello! I am a new hedgie Mamma to a little 7 week old male that my boyfriend & I named Hank. our breeder told us that when we got home to take him out and try to bond right away.. well this resulted in him biting us. He then anointed. We gave him space in his new home and took him out way...

    Whoops. Warning: lots of poop talk ahead. Our routine: I wake her up by taking her hide off her, and then leave her alone for a bit to wake up. She'll generally eat some kibble, but after about five minutes will start trying to burrow to go back to sleep. At that point, I pick her up and give...

    Hello! I am a brand new hedgehog owner, my little one's name is Henry and he is 4 months old and he seems to be getting more and more aggressive with each day that passes. I've owned him for a full month now and in the beginning when I first brought him home he seemed like a sweet little boy...

    My fiance and I brought our new little boy home. I have done quite a bit of research - and am now thoroughly confused with all the conflicting information. He is two months old and I read that I am supposed to let him sleep in his cage all day until he's at least 6 months old (because to wake...
  5. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I first need to say that I have two awesome children and two cool dogs, and generally think I'm moderately okay at keeping those I'm in charge of well cared for, healthy and happy. That said, our hedgehog got the best of me and I may have failed thus far in socializing her properly, but I am...
  6. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I recently got a baby hedgehog and he started off so friendly. Though he was nervous at first he very quickly warmed up to me and was wonderful about running all over my arms and hands, or cuddling when I was just doing something else or watching tv. Recently he has become increasingly grumpy...

    Hey everyone! A little over a week ago I adopted two sweet little hedgies named Rosie (left) and Sophie (right). They're both two years old. So far Sophie's been doing okay adapting to me, but Rosie's still scared and puffs up all the time :( Does anyone have any bonding tips?

  9. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hey all. This is my first time with a baby hedge. I've had two adults before, but never a baby and I know they're a bit different. I've had her a month (she's 12 weeks on Friday), but her behaviour has changed. When I got her, she was quite friendly and would come out and play with minimum...
  10. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    Hi, :) I know hedgies are nocturnal, but what time do they typically wake up? I do not have my hedgehog yet, I'll be picking him up next week so I'm trying to adjust my schedule in order to get the most bonding time with him as possible. Some say as soon as the sun goes down, which would be...

    Hello everyone, I'm a first-time hedgehog owner looking for some advice on my four-month-old hedgehog I bought from a pet store about two-and-half weeks ago. The first week I had him he kept biting me (once he even broke skin), but I'm working with him. I hold him every evening, I made a...
  12. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I adopted my precious little hedgie last Saturday. Her name is Princess Quillia. I already love her to death! But I had some questions on ways to maybe get her to be a little more social around me, my fiance and my cat. She seems to be more comfortable around me (understandable since I'm her...
  13. Hedgehog Personality and Behaviour
    I'm sorry if the questions that I am about to ask seem unnecessary to some of you but I am new to hedgehogs and sometimes no matter how much research you may have done you still feel unsure about the things you've read -especially when it comes to hedgehogs because opinions online are often...

    I've read some ways to bond, and I have a bonding pouch. Currently she is in it and on my lap, but she keeps huffing, every slight movement I make, and even when I'm not moving her quills are erect. I can't tell if its the scent or what may be making her freak out. I don't know how else to bond...

    Hello! I signed up today, and may use this frequently as my pet is the center of my existence. I have an adorable little hedgie whom I take great care of. Or at least, I like to think so. His name is Fiore. I pick him up everyday, and sit him on my lap. He used to huff, hiss or click a LOT when...

    I was holding my hedgie, FloraJane, inside my sweatshirt at my desk. But then I had to get up and do things. I know there are bonding snuggle sacks that you can wear around your neck or carry on your shoulder, but what if I need both hands and don't want the extra bulk around my neck? I thought...

    I have had my hedgehog for almost 2-3 years now. I will admit she has been neglected as of recent. I drives me crazy when I don't have time for her. She has always been hard for me to care for because she is vey aggressive. No matter how much time I spent with her she was very mean and even...

    My baby boy Charlie came home with me last night! He is going through some quilling and on top of that he is in a new environment and I want him to feel comfortable and safe. Last night he ate most of his dinner and was on his wheel like crazy and playing with his toys. Then he made quite the...
